Syniverse  announced the expansion of its relationship with SoftBank Mobile, which has selected core Syniverse solutions, Data Clearing House (DCH) for GSM and Syniverse DataNet, to optimize its mobile roaming operations.
 
This significant competitive takeaway is the latest in a number of Syniverse wins across Asia Pacific, including recently announced contracts with China UnicomAircel of India, and Korea Telecom.
 
“The focus and dedication of Syniverse’s in-region support team are very important to SoftBank as we focus on providing optimal service for our subscribers,” said Shigeyasu Suenaga, GM for international service at SoftBank. “We look forward to enhancing our clearing operations as well as ensuring real-time fraud protection with these latest service additions.”
 
Via Syniverse’s DCH for GSM, SoftBank will reap benefits beyond a simplified data clearing process, including enhanced decision making through comprehensive financial, marketing and statistical reporting, as well as improved revenue assurance thanks to extensive data checking and fraud detection.
 
With DataNet, SoftBank will tap into Syniverse’s robust, cost-efficient Near Real-Time Roaming Data Exchange (NRTRDE) platform that provides immediate access to critical information needed to combat roaming fraud. As with each of the company’s solutions, Syniverse DataNet and DCH for GSM are backed by its world-class infrastructure and unmatched disaster recovery capabilities.
